Venice in all its splendid glory and hustle and bustle comes to a hush just before it reaches the open sea here in cannaregio. There are some bustling parts of course, near the station and by the Guglie bridge but if you wal on a bit only for 2 or 3 minutes it becomes a relaxing haven full. Great restaurants.... More

I stayed in Cannaregio when I was in Venice. It's the old Jewish quarter of the city, I believe, and it's a very scenic area, close to the Grande Canal. There are lots of great places to sit by the water and watch the people and the boats go by. There are also some nice restaurants. That said, it's also... More

Two thirds of Venetians are said to live in this district. It is quite authentic in atmosphere and architecture with much smaller crowds. We walked for hours, enjoyed some great cafes and food, nice boutiques and got to see the first area named as the ghetto (term derived from foundries).

We booked a vacation rental in the Cannaregio District near Miracoli Church and could not have been happier. We were away from the crowds and could venture into the busier areas as needed. We were also close to markets and restaurants that were much more reasonable priced. Finally, the experience felt like we "lived" in the neighborhood and that can't... More

So quiet here in the back streets. This was my 4th visit to Venice and the busiest. So many Americans here. Will come back in October again next time. Had a quick drink at Al Timon, booked a table for later in the week.

We spent one day just walking around the island. We went through this neighborhood on our way to the train station. It feels so much more like a real neighborhood than the San Marco area. There are some nice, reasonably priced restaurants and you can watch families walk by, see middle school aged kids walking home from football (soccer) practice... More

We visited the Jewish Ghetto in the island of Cannaregio. Very rich in culture. Beautiful people, food, and wine. I did a food tour in the ghetto. As you walk to restaurants, you get to learn the history. Definitely recommend seeing Cannaregio.

Stayed in Cannareggio and it was lovely. Not too many tourists but buzzy at the same time. Loads of restaurants and cafes, shops and supermarkets. Restaurants to watch the world go by but also quiet ones on the backwaters. I think this is the best area to stay as has an excellent atmosphere and is near to everything, the station,... More

We stayed for 3 days in Venice in the Cannaregio district which was perfect. Close enough to the station and grand canal to access all the tourist spots but far enough away from the noise to relax in the evening. Will definitely stay in this area again.

Great place to walk around to get away from the crowds by St Marks Square. Lots of restaurants and shops to explore.

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
Cannaregio
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighborhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
